Question about 2003 Ford F150 Regular Cab
2003 ford F-150, Bad smell coming from heater and even with controls turned off, smoke or something similar to smoke comes out vents. The smell is very odd smell. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks,Dennis
I had the same problem in my 98 Dodge Dakota! Replaced the heater core, problem solved. No more funky coolant smell and erie fog coming through my vents. I bought the heater core at rockauto.com online. Have purchased many items now from them. All factory parts so far at half the price of even AutoZone, even with the shipping. Also, you usually have to wait only a couple of days depending on the part and they have EVERYTHING.

Your vehicle is or may be included in a vehicle recall initiated by ford.
The problem is with your cruise control wiring. What happens is: Brake fluid manages to get to the cruise control wiring and corrodes it, this can lead to overheating, the latter resulting in engine fire.
ADVICE: 1. keep this vehicle out of your garage 2. Take this to your ford dealer ASAP, they, according to their website, will fix this at no cost.

Sounds like a wiring fault and its the acrid plastic/pee smell of the wiring.or someone has tied a kipper to inside of heater or the exhaust manifold.Dont laugh its been known,ask my ex wifes brother when they got married .

I think maybe you have a rat or cat that crawled into your warm engine compartment and got fried and maybe chewed on some wires
